Subject [jira] [Commented] (IVY-1431) Also copy original metadata artifact (e.g. POM) on ivy:install
Date Mon, 04 Nov 2013 08:48:19 GMT


Erwin Tratar commented on IVY-1431:

New metadata is nice, but only relying on the metadata would require everyone to throw away
their caches. So maybe add the metadata and use it, but if it's not available perform the
"reverse engineeing", as it could be cached with a previous version.

The last 2 checks are there to only install the original metadata if the type (e.g. "pom.original")
is different from the actual metadata (i.e. "ivy" + ".original"). So if the dependency is
not from a m2 repo, then no original metadata is installed.

I will update the patch with additional metadata (with fallback) and "installOriginalMetadata".

> Suppose you provide some module, which you are developing with Ivy and that has external
dependencies (or even worse: non publically available dependencies). Then you might want to
publish the module plus all dependencies to a filesystem repository, which then can be redistributed
and which is usable for offline builds. 
> So far, no problem. But if you do not want to or even can't force your consumers to use
Ivy, then while you can create this "offline repository" in Maven layout, it still is not
usable with Maven because the POMs of all your dependencies are missing. While Ivy remembers
them (*.orig Files), they are not used.
> The attached patch will copy the cached original metadata in the install operation if
it's type ends in ".original". Also, the restoring of the OriginArtifact from the Cache is
modified to actually restore the OriginArtifact's orignal Artifact correctly.
